feed michael it says we strongly condemn the deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, and the tragic loss of life. that sounds pretty good. but when you read it in arabic. it says, the shura council condemns abuse of the holy prophet. to the english-speaking audience, they say this is horrible. and to the arab speaking audience they say this movie we can't believe it. we have to work with these people. it's a new democracy but their loyalties are a limb mixed. >> right, and we saw the libyan government condemn the attack in pretty strong terms as well. i'll quote my former colleague chris dickey. this is all local government in the end. this is all happening on the local level. the brotherhood wants the governing power. the last guy who had u.s. support was thrown out of office with mobs in the streets. they have to be careful how they present their relationship the the with the stews. they offered what happened. it started at 10:00 p.m. chris stevens a regional security officer and a third person who was killed, john smith, they were caught alone in the main building
in benghazi where there actually is no u.s. embassy, it's not the capital of libya, was premeditated, pre-planned, which means there weren't some muslims who weren't automatically offended by this film showed up and assassinated the u.s. ambassador with rocket-propelled grenades. if anything that was a smokescreen or cover for a jihadist group to cover out a well-orchestrated attack. >> cenk: max, that's absolutely true. but there is no question that there were people significantly angry about this in egypt where they ripped the american flag, though with no arms and not organized. these guys apparently are happy with that. the extremist muslims in egypt are happy with it. that's why they promoted this movie and put it on egyptian tv. they're happy with it. are we getting caught in the cross fires of these fundamentalists. >> the point i was going to make that the long-term goal of this strange axis behind this film, which consists, as you said, christian right extremists like steve klein who is a veteran anti-muslim organizer in california and extremeist egyptian coptic exiles in the u.s
